Aston Villa have been linked with former England international goalkeeper Jack Butland for the last couple of transfer windows but with Stoke City refusing to lower their £25million valuation on the 27-year-old, we walked away and turned to Tom Heaton instead.

With Stoke continuing to struggle, although he did feature 36 times for them in the 2019/20 campaign, he made numerous individual errors in matches and after the 5-0 hammering by Leeds United, Butland found himself relegated to the bench or was out of the squad completely.

According to a report from Sky Sports, Stoke are now prepared to cut their losses with Butland still refusing to sign a contract extension (12 months left), and they are now apparently willing to let him go for as little as £8-10million.

With Heaton still working his way back to fitness, Pepe Reina’s loan spell coming to an end, Orjan Nyland (despite his clear improvement) being error-prone and Jed Steer seemingly not in head coach Dean Smith’s plans and the assumption we will be inviting offers for Lovre Kalinic – Butland might not be a bad gamble at that price.
